Database Trends and Applications (DBTA) magazine has announced the inaugural “DBTA 100: The Companies That Matter Most in Data,” a list saluting this year’s companies in data and enterprise information management—from long-standing industry veterans to fast-growing startups tackling big data. “Beyond the explosion of interest surrounding big data, the past several years have transformed enterprise information management, creating both challenges and opportunities for companies seeking to protect, optimize, integrate, and extract actionable insight from a sea of data assets,” remarked Thomas Hogan, group publisher of Database Trends and Applications. In response to this, he noted, established IT vendors as well as newer solution providers are creating the tools to do just that. “This list seeks to highlight those companies that have been successful in establishing their companies as unique resources for data professionals.”
The “DBTA 100” will be compiled annually by the editorial staff at Database Trends and Applications, and this year’s selections can be viewed here.
